My Grandmother has made these easy dessert bars for years. She keeps them in a sealed container on her buffet waiting for lucky guests to stop by and enjoy along with her famous cheese straws. These bars take 30 minutes or less to prepare and cook. You probably have the short list of ingredients in your pantry!


1 c Sugar

3/4 c Oil

1/4 c Honey (Vanilla Bean Bear Hug Honey)

1 large Egg

2 c All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Salt

1 c Pecans chopped


1 c Powdered Sugar

2 Tbs. Mayonnaise

1 tsp Vanilla

1 Tbs Honey

1-2 Tbs Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all bar ingredients in a bowl and mix until just combined. Pour mixture into greased 9x13 baking dish. Batter is very thick. Spread batter with spatula or hands to edges of pan. Bake 12-15 minutes. While bars are baking place all glaze ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Remove bars from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Pour glaze over bars and spread until the top of bars are completely covered. Let cool completely and slice into bite size bars.
